Crafternoon is a simple, easy and extremely enjoyable way of fundraising for Bipolar Scotland.
Organise a virtual date, time and place and invite a few friends, relatives or colleagues along to donate money and spend time together getting crafty. Make something, raise money for Bipolar Scotland and swap craft tips over a slice of cake and a cuppa. Have fun and help ensure no-one faces bipolar alone.
Coffee Morning and Cake Sale
Hosting a virtual Coffee Morning or an outdoor Cake Sale is a traditional way of raising funds, motivating friends and family and having a jolly good time!
First choose your venue – you can host your event at home or in your local community centre or village hall.
Next invite everyone you can think of - even if they can’t make it, it gives you a chance to talk about Bipolar Scotland and explain our work.
Then involve as many other people as possible – ask for help with baking, decorating, meet and greet etc. Everything is more fun with a Group of friends involved!
Do your own thing!
Whatever you're doing, wherever you do it and however much money you raise, we're fantastically grateful you’re on our team! You’ll be making a huge difference by ensuring nobody faces bipolar alone.
Always be upfront when hosting a fundraiser - no hidden surprises means your guests will be prepared to maximise their donations and support! And don’t hesitate to contact us if you need help organising or promoting your event – call 0141 560 2050 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for free advice.
You might want to abseil down a tall building… jump out of a plane… or walk for miles wearing a kilt. These are all great activities but you’ll enjoy them even more if you’re raising money for Bipolar Scotland!
